Every Year A Major Northern California Highway Closes Down For This Epic Event

For 68 years, Highway 50 from South Lake Tahoe to Placerville has transformed every summer into a historic wagon train route. People come to participate in this historic reenactments of the early pioneers journey out west. They hop in their old fashioned wagon trains (because we all have one of those laying around), saddle up their horses, and recreate the adventure.

And the best part is, you can either join them or watch them along the way. Here are a few photos that will make you want to be a part of this unique event.
